Fallen Firefighter

Fire service honor guards present the 103 American flags that were given to survivors of lost firefighters from 2016 and earlier years at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Sunday in Emmitsburg.

Thousands of people from across the nation gathered in Emmitsburg this weekend to pay tribute to fallen firefighters.

The 37th annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend was a chance for families, friends and colleagues to grieve and honor their loved ones killed in the line of duty. The names of each of the 80 firefighters killed in 2017, along with the names of 23 firefighters who died in previous years, were added to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
